Architect’s Foundation Scholarship

The Diversity Advancement Scholarship:  History, Eligibility & How to Apply
image002.pngThe AIA / Architects Foundation Diversity Advancement Scholarship, originally called the AIA/Ford Foundation Scholarship, was founded in 1969 when the AIA and Ford Foundation each pledged $500,000 to support three different groups of students’ education in the field of architecture. During that time, the scholarship committee found that most schools of architecture were unequipped to train and develop architects and planners to work effectively in the inner city.

Applicants must be attending or entering either a NAAB accredited professional degree in architecture or a pre-professional degree in architecture at an institution that offers a NAAB accredited professional degree; for a list of institutions that offer a NAAB degree, please visit
